Makeover: Lifted Root and Natural Ash Effect

Anne Moratto | August 20, 2016 | 3:12 PM

She calls this a “magical makeover” and we agree.  “This couldn't have had a better outcome!” says Bree Little (@breanna_anythingbutbasic)

PROCESS

STEP ONE: Started with a bleach soap cap of BlondorLightener and 30 vol mixed with shampoo. Process took roughly 6 minutes, bringing a pale ash blonde.

STEP TWO: I lifted the roots with same lightener mixture minus shampoo and added Olaplex. Processed for about 35-40 min lifting to level 10.

STEP THREE: On damp hair I applied a mixture of 1oz 8n, 1/2oz 6nb,1/4 oz 6t Redken Shades Eqon roots, staggering out.

“Processed for 25 min and Bam! There we are.”

Little posted this on Instagram and was asked: 

  • davidsean79nice color combo in your formula - let me ask why the t. I see it came out beautifully gorgeous.. just seeing your thought process on adding some t

To which she replied:

  • @davidsean79"t" is on the grey side and when playing around I found it adds a bit more of a natural ash effect. To me when added over a lifted root or lifted in general it helps keep a natural look versus a "color" if that makes sense? I use T a lot with ombre transition as well.

How To Winterize a Summer Blonde: Babylights with Reverse Balayage using Redken pH Bonder

Alison Alhamed and Jamie Newman | November 29, 2016

Our summer blonde made the perfect model to demonstrate the beauty of Redken’s new pH Bonder because although she isn’t frequently coloring her hair, living in New York City means she’s walking outside a lot with exposure to the sun and city elements—plus thermal damage from regular use of a curling wand or flatiron. So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.
